DescriptionTwo sample plots in oak-hickory stands of poletimber-small sawtimber were thinned to determine product yields from thinnings. One stand received a light thinning; the other was heavily thinned. Light thinning reduced basal area from 120 ft² to 84 ft² per acre and removed 22 tons of roundwopd per acre, including 2,543 board feet of sawed products and 7 tons of pulpwood and firewood. Heavy thinning reduced basal area from 111 ft² to 53 ft² per acre and removed 48 tons of roundwood per acre, including 5,319 board feet of sawed products and 16.9 tons of pulpwood and firewood.
